STEP stands for Sixth Term Examination Paper, and for entry to university is typically taken in year 13.
There are 3 papers:
STEP I is on A Level Maths content.

STEP II is on AS Level Further Maths content.

STEP III is on A Level Further Maths content.

Very few people do this. The few I've seen that achieved good grades (though all of them I've seen exceeded the standard offer) in STEP received an offer only conditional on A-levels - which would be for all intents and purposes unconditional for someone of that calibre. More do just STEP I at the end of Y12 but probably still very few.

If you're considering doing STEP I/II/III all in Year 12 and realistically looking at 1s you should be looking at Cambridge, no? That was what I meant but I assume Warwick/Durham are similar.

Standard offer for Warwick with STEP is A*A*A + 1 in STEP.

Durham's offer is A*AA + 1 in STEP or suitable performance in MAT/TMUA. (while I assume at this level you'll be mainly looking at C/O firm [if you get an offer], W/I insurance some do choose to go elsewhere)

Oh sorry. Warwick and Durham ask for a 1 in any paper. For most people this would be STEP I, but if you took all three and had a bad day and got like, 211 in I/II/III, this would also meet their offer.

gcx had explained the offers, but I'm thinking maybe you haven't even looked at the grading system. The possible grades for STEP (from best to worst) are S, 1,2, 3, unclassified. https://www.admissionstesting.org/fo...g-and-results/

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (513)

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (627)

Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (310)
